Chen YL, Chiang HH, Chiang CY, Liu CM, Yuan SM, Wang JH - Sensors (Basel) (2012)

Bottom Line: The proposed system processes the road-scene frames in front of the host car captured from CCD sensors mounted on the host vehicle.These vision-based sensing and processing technologies are integrated and implemented on an ARM-DSP heterogamous dual-core embedded platform.Peripheral devices, including image grabbing devices, communication modules, and other in-vehicle control devices, are also integrated to form an in-vehicle-embedded vision-based nighttime driver assistance and surveillance system.

ABSTRACT
This study proposes a vision-based intelligent nighttime driver assistance and surveillance system (VIDASS system) implemented by a set of embedded software components and modules, and integrates these modules to accomplish a component-based system framework on an embedded heterogamous dual-core platform. Therefore, this study develops and implements computer vision and sensing techniques of nighttime vehicle detection, collision warning determination, and traffic event recording. The proposed system processes the road-scene frames in front of the host car captured from CCD sensors mounted on the host vehicle. These vision-based sensing and processing technologies are integrated and implemented on an ARM-DSP heterogamous dual-core embedded platform. Peripheral devices, including image grabbing devices, communication modules, and other in-vehicle control devices, are also integrated to form an in-vehicle-embedded vision-based nighttime driver assistance and surveillance system.

Mentions: Figures 20–22 (Test videos 4–6) depict experimental video scenes of urban roads under different illumination conditions with congested and free-flowing traffic conditions. As Figures 20–22 illustrate, the proposed system successfully detects the target oncoming and preceding vehicles with their distances to the host car, despite interference from numerous non-vehicle illumination objects in various urban road environments with different ambient lighting conditions. The system also activates warning and event recording processes under various environmental conditions associated with the complexity of road scenes.
